To the End of the Land by David Grossman
Preview — A un cerbiatto somiglia il mio amore by David Grossman. A un cerbiatto somiglia il mio amore by David Grossman. Israele, guerra dei sei giorni. Avram, Orah e Ilan, sedicenni, sono ricoverati nel reparto di isolamento di un piccolo ospedale di Gerusalemme. Dopo trentasei anni da quel primo incontro, O Israele, guerra dei sei giorni. Quest’ultimo, che sta svolgendo il servizio di leva, accetta di partecipare a un’incursione in Cisgiordania nonostante siano ormai i suoi ultimi giorni di ferma.
Orah, che aveva progettato una gita a piedi con il figlio per festeggiare la fine del servizio militare, decide di partire lo stesso. Non riesce infatti a vincere un oscuro presentimento che si agita dentro di lei, e d’altra parte non resiste all’idea di trascorrere altre notti con l’incubo di essere svegliata nel cuore della notte, come da protocollo dell’esercito israeliano, e ricevere la notizia di una disgrazia.

I really struggled with this one, and to a certain extent I feel like I am giving four stars because respect must be paid, to Grossman as a novelist at the height of his powers using all his craft to create a formally perfect and emotionally searing masterpiece, to Grossman as a father who somehow managed to slmiglia some small piece of his loss and transform it into art, to Grossman as a rational thinking caring man in a place where rationality and caring are at best perilously endangered.
And so r I really struggled with this one, and to a certain extent I feel like I am giving four stars because respect must be paid, to Grossman as a novelist at the height of his powers using all his craft to create a formally perfect and emotionally searing masterpiece, to Grossman as a father who somehow managed to take some small piece of his loss and transform it into art, to Grossman as a rational thinking caring man in a place ax rationality and caring are at best perilously endangered.
And so respect is somigkia — to Grossman and to his two towering creations: Ora, the feminine cerboatto, the mother, all interiority we experience so much of this novel inside her head, but also very literally inside her body and all the sensations that take place thereand Avram, who is really two himself, the logorrheic boy and every Jewish kid in the world has been to summer camp with someone like Avram, brilliant and awkward and ugly and self-deprecating and caustic and savage and the damaged man who has learned to live without ambition, desire or pain — making a little world aomre himself with other imperfect souls and bits of trash this Avram, this diminished but not dead life force is perhaps the strongest part of the novel, and Avram’s tragedy so much more vivid and real than the plot points that come after.
So much aamore brilliantly realized, and yet, I did struggle, because within this grand sweep and I will accept the suspension of disbelief that creates monumental concidences and unnaturally detailed memory and dialogue that is monologue and all kinds of things that are not realism — but this isn’t realism, it’s archetype, and myththere add places where we just bog down.
There are scenes minutely recounting the boys the second set of boys, Ora’s sons as children, with tics, passions and manias, that seem to go on and on. And I was never sure what Grossman was trying to do with these scenes: Pay homage to his dead son by making him live again cebriatto memory because that is cerbatto book’s central theme — as befits a Jewish ceriatto — memory as elegy but memory also as life cerblatto There seemed to be a deeper thread about the relationship between the two brothers, their apparent twinning of darkness and light, that never quite became real for me and never achieved the depth of feeling that I think Grossman wanted it to have.
A un cerbiatto somiglia il mio amore
And there are times when you get frustrated with Ora, with for all her maternal generosity her persistent self-centered blindness to the pain of others — to Sami’s pain, to Avram’s pain, to her sons’ pain. Shut up and listen, you want to say, and maybe that’s part of the point. But still intense and powerful — particularly the scenes of that first hallucinatory nightmare day with Sami in his taxi with the briefly new upholstery, and as noted above, Avram’s story and his arc.

It may seem odd to use the word refreshing considering the subject matter but I found that too was refreshing or ub the way in which it was presented.
This book was challenging in a good way it was also confronting at times in a gentle rather than brutal way, it was also joyous and saddening. The writing made me feel l I really enjoyed reading this book. The writing made me feel like I was present with the characters either as an invisible guest at the family home sitting at the kitchen table or as a bird in tree overlooking a meadow with Ora and Avram, seeing, hearing and feeling the story unfold.
Fortunately I had not read any reviews before reading the book so the ending was quite a surprise but that too made it stand out. I highly recommend this novel. My sincere thanks to the author for sharing this with me. Tale by Israeli author, ant-settlement protester whose son was killed in the army shortly before he finishes the book. The story is far from flawless: Nevertheless it is an extremely powerful story and works on two levels: Un viaggio lontano dal mondo di cui Orah non vuole avere notizie, per raccontare ad Avram di Ofer, il figlio che non ha mai conosciuto, cetbiatto speranza che parlarne possa proteggerlo dal proprio destino e riportarlo vivo a casa.
Sono tante le pagine struggenti, le parole che trasudano emozioni, ma anche le pagine ripetitive ed eccessivamente particolareggiate non sempre utili alla narrazione.
At first I really struggled with this book: Why do I love this book? With Ora, Grossman has sketched a “big”, primeval woman: That sounds silly and of course very gender-coloured, I know, but with this character Grossman really got me captivated. Ora is powerful, hypersensitive, very obsessed with life, but often also very weak, blind, a At first I really struggled with this book: Ora is powerful, hypersensitive, very obsessed with life, but often also very weak, blind, and insensitive.
What attracted me especially in her is how her feelings express themselves physically, coming from a deep source, suddenly, without being able to control them. The male types her ‘men’ Ilan and Avram, – yes, a love triangle – and her sons Adam and Ofer are apparently very different and yet very similar; they all have great issues with reality; but the interaction between them is sparkling, challenging and at the same time sometimes frustrating, because they exclude Ora for a large part.
The almost physical-mental struggle of Ora, Ilan and Avram with parenting is definitely one of the strengths in this book; with a lot of details, Grossman especially through the story-telling Ora describes the intense bond between the three parents and their children and their sometimes almost morbid worries; I have to admit that this touched a very sensitive string for me: Grossman has put that beautifully into words.
This also includes the aspect of the horrors of the war and the terror, evoked especially in the hallucinatory scenes in Sinai during the Yom Kippur war of There are so many other elements I could enumerate to illustrate the strength of this novel, but I guess you get the picture. Just some focus on the weaker sides then: The long intro, especially the first 50 pages in the hospital, where you actually do not know what is happening though perhaps in a second reading everything will fall into place 2.
The stories of Ora about her family life are sometimes quite spun out, with lots of details about the complex interaction between her and Ilan, between Adam and Ofer, and so on; who owns a family will recognize a lot in all those small, seemingly futile and at the same time enchanging details, but I can surely understand that people drop out here 3.

Ora hugs her knees, rationalizing that she isn’t all that accessible and permeable even to herself anymore, and that even she herself doesn’t go near that place inside of her.
It must be that she’s growing old, she decides–for some time now she’s had a strange eagerness to pronounce her aging, impatient for the relief that comes with a declaration of total bankruptcy. That’s how it goes. You say goodbye to yourself even before other people start to, softening the bl They sit quietly, digesting.
You say goodbye to yourself even before other people start to, softening the blow of what will inevitably come. Israeli writer David Grossman’s To the End of the Land is a tortuous and conflicted epic about the cost of war–how it commands the attention of not just the soldiers but of those left behind, seemingly waiting for death to enter their lives in a way they hadn’t expected.
This novel is centered around Ora, an Israeli mother of two sons, Adam and Ofer, ages twenty-four and twenty-one respectively. She has drifted from her son Adam and is separated from her husband, Ilan, who are now both on a trip together in South America. Adam has finished her military service but her youngest son, Ofer, has voluntarily signed up for another mission on the eve of her and Ofer’s plans to go on a camping trip.
Ora is devastated by this and overwhelmed with the possibility of his death. Ora decides to walk ‘to the end of the land’, to the Galilee, in hopes of avoiding any bad news of ever reaching her. Accompanying her on this trip is Avram, a friend since she was fifteen years old and her first boyfriend The prologue, set inlays down the foundation for the love triangle between Ilan, Avram and Ora which plays out on several levels throughout the novel.
All three met while they were hospitalized with illnesses while they were teens and become so embroiled in each others lives is difficult to imagine one functioning without the other. Ilan is handsome, detached and emotionally deprived while Avram is jovial, artistic and impassioned. Both are in love with Ora.
Ora can’t choose between the aomre and while both are away at military service, they alternated weekends with Ora. He returns battered and mutilated, qmore of personality and emotion. Ilan feels responsible; Ora feels guilty. Ilan and Ora have coupled while Avram is away and have a son. But Ilan is threatened by the idea of family and flees his home life. After Avram is recuperated, he tells Ora that he can’t perform sexually.
